Sister Norma & ESL students 6The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown are Catholic Nuns who respond together to meet the critical needs of God’s people in Youngstown and northeast Ohio. St. Angela Merici, our founder, was born in Italy in 1535. She was a woman of faith and vision who served the Church and sought to be an instrument of change in her world. Today the Sisters live Gospel values, desire to deepen their relationship with Christ, support one another in community, and strive to make a difference in the world.

The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown minister in the areas of education, health care, social service, parish work, marketing and development with a focus on poverty. The Ursuline Sisters sponsor several nonprofit programs, such as Beatitude House, Casa Madre, Ursuline Preschool and Kindergarten and Dorothy Day House.

  1. Yes, Sister Pauline is alive and well! Here is a video in which she shares her ministry

  2. Way back when, and I’m sorry lost touch with a Sister and only thing I can remember is her first name-Pauline
    She was friends with Sister Jean Desort, a Dominican in Akron. I was wondering if Sister Pauline was still living, if so how is she doing?
    Long ago Sister did work in Youngstown at the Diocese.
    Thank you
    Mary from kent ohio
